Stronger - Tf3

I came across this video on a friend's blog and enjoyed it tremendously so I wanted to share it with all of you. It's little video against bullying which as we a know as been in the news over the last couple of years. Although this is a problem which is not new. I think at some point in our life time we have come across it either as a victim or a passive witness.

I wish this wasn't a problem in the world we live in today, but it is. As a society we have finally said enough is enough and this problem needs to be dealt with. It is unfortunate that some of the events that have brought it to our attention only after something tragic has taken place. 

 Enjoy the video and I'd love to hear your response to it. Only wish the track was available to purchase, but not yet.

We are Time for Three and this is our story -- the story of so many kids who every day face challenges to who they are and who they want to be: their dreams, their ambitions, their identity. This video is for you guys. Be strong. Stick with it. We did, and we are stronger for it.
Why did you make this video? We’ve been wanting to make a music video for a long time – but not just a regular music video, one with a strong positive message for young people.
And what is the video’s message? Be stronger, achieve your dreams, fight against bullies or WHATEVER strong force is against you.
Who funded this project? This project was completely self-funded, and could not have done this without the incredible support of our fans. 274 fans contributed over $18K through our on-line Kickstarter campaign in just over a week, and another fan bought into our vision and made a substantial contribution, enabling us to book our trip to LA!
When and where was it created? The video was made over a two-day period at the end of August 2011 in Los Angeles. Most of the filming was done at a campus-style high school.
How did you get this idea? Tf3 and our producer Steve Hackman have been wanting to make a music video for some time. However it wasn't until Zach came up with the idea for the story that we all felt inspired. All four of us realized that we had similar stories: we were the kid in school who didn’t fit in and was sometimes bullied or left out because we played an instrument. But we didn’t give up.
Who was the Producer? Our Producer Steve Hackman
Who was the Director? Brian Lazzaro, a world-famous film director in Los Angeles.
Who wrote the music? The music by Daft Punk/Kanye West and brilliantly arranged by Steve Hackman and Time for Three.
Do Kanye West and Daft Punk know about the video? We've reached out to their people, yes, and of course we hope they like it!
Who was the kid actor? Does he really play violin? The “kid” is Misha Vayman, one of Zach’s former violin students. Everything about this project is very personal. Misha is a now freshman at the Cleveland Institute of Music, studying with Joan Kwuon.
